OOOOOOOOOOO MMMMMMMMMMMMMM GGGGGGGGGGGGGG that is just amazing and surprising, i mean, i should see it coming since we had an awesome response from NGers and Tom added me to his favorite artists list (no joke) even when i am (or was, i dunno) a perfect nobody...

OK, so thank you Tom and thanks to newgrounds and all the user who enjoyed our movie, also congrats to all the other winners (i sound like miss universe now) and be sure that youll know from me in the future and maybe from my friend Voodoll with an account of his own... thank you guys...

LOL, Lalo told me via PM that weve won, and i didnt knew what he was talking about...XD

I strongly disagree.
I didn't even really think it deserved a place in the top 3.

Together is fine, just be sure to explain it all clearly. You'd be surprised by how people can organize info sometimes. :)

It really is a shame that Pico & The Butchery didn't win anything, as it was really well done and seemed to have taken a LOT of effort. Though I know there were a lot of good ones and the choices were tough.. : \

I am wondering, though, why it isn't being recognized as front page material?

This is the kinda of response that I dread getting... Considering a lot of people put a lot of work into their entries, but they all can't win. You gotta look at the upside to what you accomplished - you came together and made something great, advancing your skills in the process. I played Super Pico AllStarts from start to finish and loved it, but now I realize that it didn't get front page and didn't get a prize, so I feel like I'm letting you guys down on my end of the deal. That's the bitter part of the bittersweet ending to Pico Day... Every submission that gets front page, is the result of another submission NOT getting front page, and it's like a constant battle to give everything a chance on the front page, while also giving front page submissions enough time on the front page... This is the type of stuff that has me back on NG three hours after going to bed. :(

It was on the front page, but got pulled out to rotate another Pico Day entry in. Today I have to decide just how many Pico Day submissions to pull from the front page, to make room for other Pico Day submissions and all the non-Pico Day submissions that have been ignored over the course of these past few days. We need a Pico Day sticky at the top of the page...

Or mabye another two Front Page buttons.

Well that's an awesome selection of games/movies. I didn't win with Pico AllStars but I did with Darnell's Burn Em Up, so at least I can celebrate that. :)

You mean like one of those collection page rotators we had on clockday and christmas time? Yeah that would be a good idea.

There were some fantastic submissions this year, I say, congrats to all the winners. :)
And awesome that MentosClock won and all!

Nooooooooo, no more front page icons! I'm not one of those Front Page Puritans who feels that more submissions on the front reduces the integrity of those that actually made it there, so much as it's a bit overwhelming with viewers already needing to use the scroll bar to see what's up there even now.

Defeats the purpose of the Front Page being a sort of...highlight/synopsis of what's new on NG.

Additional front page buttons have actually been a detriment in a lot of ways... People were more likely to view all the front page submissions back when we had a smaller group of them. Now, people sorta just glaze over them. They still get a lot of attention, but it's different now. The thing to keep in mind is, showing 10 icons doesn't mean people will click 10 icons... People come to the site and might just choose one thing to click. The fact that the front page listing isn't as "tight and defined" as it once was means people might not even pick one of those items to click. It's something I need to get more scientific about, to unlock the true key to the perfect balance.

OMFG way to repeat me, Tom!!11

And the "perfect balance" is two slices of provolone melted over pastrami instead of just one. Also, this is not an analogy. I'm hungry.
